Results of the RSA Board of Directors Election
I send this note to make several important announcements.
I am pleased to announce the election of the five people listed below to four-year terms on the RSA Board of Directors that will begin July 1, 2022. I look forward to working with each of them.
- Amy Young, Pacific Lutheran University
- Anita Mixon, Wayne State University
- Rasha Diab, University of Texas at Austin
- Jennifer LeMesurier, Colgate University
- Rachael McIntosh, Northeastern University
They will replace five current Directors who will complete their terms at the end of June. I am deeply grateful to Lisa Flores, Ersula Ore, Gwendolyn Pough (who is not leaving us entirely!), Karrieann Soto Vega, and Anjali Vats for their generous service to RSA. Because governance of RSA is Board-centered, elected Directors do extensive and important work advancing the purposes of the Society.
A reminder: As you know, Gwendolyn Pough was designated President-Elect by the Board of Directors in February and will begin that service formally on July 1. On that date, Vanessa Beasley will begin her two-year term as President, and I will begin mine as Immediate Past President. That date will mark the end of Kirt Wilson's term as our Immediate Past President – his exemplary service to RSA merits the gratitude of us all.
